The circular shape of the sun which emphasizes the evr occuring cyclical nature of the seasons is the origin of this neolithic symbol. It combines a cross within a circle and is the simplist conceivable representation to the union of opposed polarities. Probable the oldest symbol in the world, it appeared in Asia, America, European and Indian art from the dawn of history.

This solar, or wheel cross. is recreated in silver,is recreted in silver from a petroglyph found at Red Tank Draw near Sedona, Arizona
